Review of Albany, New York

Best times in Albany
Star Rating - 1/15/2015
The culture in Albany really makes you appreciate where you live. This town is a great place to live a life of fitness and well-being. With so many trails, parks and places to exercise, plus the social influence of the neighborhood, I can't think of a better place live a healthy life.

Albany has one of the worst obesity and diabetes rates in New York State, and is a cultural nightmare, if you enjoy rampant racism, homophobia, feeling superior to anyone who isn’t Christian or Catholic, and discrimination as a whole, especially on religious grounds, and a history of drug violence and trafficking, then, yes, you will find Albany a culture rich area that you’ll be proud to call home, now if you’re a decent person, you’ll find Albany to be extremely lacking of any positive cultural influences
